Moonlit Garden Materials
The design concept for this bracelet is to keep your colors subtle, with a pop in a metal color. I like things to be very wearable and since I usually wear gold jewelry, I chose something that looks similar to 14kt gold, Miyuki’s Champagne. I used Eggplant (soft purple) for the majority of the bracelet for the subdued color as I imagine the garden under the moonlight, and it makes a nice combination too. This is something to keep in mind while selecting your colors.
